About the Authors
John Everson is the Bram Stoker Award–winning author of nine novels of erotic horror and the macabre, including the Bram Stoker Award–nominated tour de force Nightwhere. John shares a deep purple den in Naperville, Illinois with a cockatoo and cockatiel, a disparate collection of fake skulls, twisted skeletal fairies, Alan Clark illustrations and a large stuffed Eeyore.

Sometimes his wife is surprised to find him shuffling through more public areas of the house, but it’s usually only to brew another cup of coffee.
